Do web host really use SSD drives?


When any provider says unlimited then first thing you should check is their FUP (Fair Usage Policy). Mostly they mention unlimited space is only for hosting files and not for storing emails and images.

As the prices of SSD have come down drastically and due to no moving parts they are less prone to downtime, hosting providers have started offering SSD.

AccuWeb Hosting uses pure SSD Drive for their shared hosting plans.

SSD is the trend right now in the market, and many hosting companies usually go for SSD.
Better read their constraints before investing as Unlimited also has some limits.

"Unlimited" is to be taken with a grain of salt.

But SSD or not expensive anymore, even NVMe became affordable.

I remember when a physical SSD costed 1$ / GB or or even $3 / GB. Not the case any more.
